Hi

I went to open add and remove and it doesn't open.
I've ran Spybot SD...Adaware...AVG6 (complete scan) plus HijackThis. They're
all updated also with latest definitions etc.etc And they all come up clean.
So I'm wondering if it's been corrupted or gone buggy. If so does anyone
know how to resolve this?

Sounds like the sysoc.inf maybe corrupt. Insert your windows xp cd and try
the following from either a command prompt or from Start | Run. Substitute
the d:\ for whatever driver letter you cdrom is.

expand D:\i386\sysoc.in_ C:\sysoc.inf

This will extract the original installation file from the cd to c:\. Once
expanded copy the sysoc.inf to c:\windows\inf and overwrite the existing
file. If you cannot see the inf folder you will need to unhide by clicking
tools | folder options | View | Show Hidden files and folders.
